Question about Kenmore 54501 Dehumidifier

1 Answer

Kenmore dehumidifier will not pull the humidity out of the air. Repairman said that the evaporator has a leak. Is there a seal material I can put into the system? How many PSI should the R22 be when charged? Thanks...

You must be qualified and licensed to work on a sealed system with R22 And it's not the PSI that matters. If the evaporator is leaking, get a new dehumidifier.

Can my 3 in 1 air cooler also be used as a dehumidifier


an air cooler is a dehumidifier by definition
It cools the air around the evaporator giving you cool air and at the same time any humidity in the air is condensed into water and drained off
to understand air conditioner principles it goes something like this
we sweat and the more we sweat is because of the humidity in the air
if the air temp is 30 degrees c with a humidity of 75% then we feel that it is a very hot muggy day simply because the humidity stops the sweat from evaporating and allowing the skin to cool
Now it you take the humidity out of the air and at the same day temperature , you will actually feel cool because the sweat can evaporate and cool the skin
now you can understand that the best setting for air conditioning is 25 degrees c because if the setting is lower then the skin gets too cool because there is no humidity to restrict the evaporation of the sweat
modern spilt systems have a mode called comfort where the fan and the compressor work to maintain a constant level of humidity when sleeping and you don't get cold especially towards the morning

Freezing up and bucket not filling


Hi,

The coils you see on the back of your dehumidifier are the evaporator. When the unit runs, the coils get very cold. As the fan draws the room air over the coils, the humidity in the air condenses out of the air onto the cold coils. But, if the temperature of the air the fan draws over the coils is too cool, the humidity that condenses out of the air freezes on the coils. To remedy this problem, you can try any of these: Warm up the room the dehumidifier is in. Put the dehumidifier on a sturdy table (the room air is coolest near the ground).

Turn the unit off until the room warms up.
Good luck

Start up instruction for dehumidifier


A dehumidifier does not need water in the tank.It takes humidity out of the air and the moisture goes into the bucket. A humidifier has to have water in the tank.Note ,a humidifier puts moisture in the air, and a dehumidifier takes the moisture takes moisture out of the air.

What could be wrong with my dehumidifier it runs but doesn't draw moisture anymore


does the air feel humid? could be the humidity level dropped and there isn't any moisture in the air. the air passing over the evaporator coil needs to be laden with moisture for the dehumidifier to work.

I NEED TO KNOW WHAT PERCENTAGE MEANS ON A DE-HUMIDIFIER


In plain English, the Percentage setting on your de-humidifier is the percentage of moisture that you want to maintain in the air. Relative humidity level range from about 10% (VERY dry air) to almost 100% (VERY damp air). When relative humidity is 100%, water vapor in the air will turn into rain, condensation, dew, snow or frost. 50% humidity is usually a comfortable level, but that will also depend on air temperature. The more moisture there is in the air, the warmer it feels and conversely. Warm air will hold more moisture than cooler air.

Your body is cooled when moisture on your skin evaporates into the air, carrying body heat with it. As the humidity in the air rises, less of your body moisture is able to evaporate and thus your body feels wamer. Lower humidty allows moisture from your body to evaporate more quickly and you feel cooler, both at the exact same temperature.
